there is no argument about a free and fair election in ukraine. we also need to help this country that's going through some extremely difficult economic times. a recent article i read suggested ukraine needs our assistance way beyond the $1 billion which secretary kerry has talked about in his visit. but in order to achieve that, they're going to have to make some significant and maybe unpopular reforms in their economy, in their gas program and the like. it's tricky. to do that runs the risk of a popular backlash against these reforms but without the reforms, there could be no meaningful aid package. we need to stand with ukraine and ukraine needs to stand for the reforms necessary to strengthen their economy. this week i'm working with senators brown, shaheen, wicker, king, collins and warren warner to condemn the russian action in crimea. there's more to be done. senator menendez talked -- the aid and the sanctions that may be necessary. i sincerely hope the sanctions won't be necessary. i hope vladimir putin and the russians understand they cannot show this kind of aggression toward crimea without

that belarus and ukraine and kazakhstan when they all became independent, when they became new countries, when they split off away from russia, they agreed to give up the nuclear weapons that were within their borders by the hundreds and by the thousands. what a different world this would be had they not made that decision, right? and it wasn't an easy decision for them to make. but they did it. and in fact it was 20 years ago this week that ukraine put the first 60 nuclear warheads from its intercontinental missiles on a train and sent that train from ukraine back to russia where the warheads got decommissioned. by that summer they had shipped triple that number of warheads. by two years later, the ukrainian president declared the nation of ukraine to be nuclear weapons free. and even though the country where chernobyl happened, ukraine, happened to -- they had to have been happy at a very deep level to be rid of all that nuclear liability, all those thousands of nuclear weapons stationed throughout that very big and at that point very young country must have been a scary thing, but particula

of all, he doesn't want all of the economic problems of those countries. ukraine is an economic basket case. so are some of the other states in the near abroad. so what he wants is political influence, he wants these countries to look to russia for guidance on what to do on the international environment, and he also wants to re-create or create some kind of an economic union, but he certainly doesn't want responsibility for internal problems that a lot of these countries have, especially their economic problems. >> so even though he said the worst thing that happened in the history of the 20th century was the collapse of the soviet union, you believe that if he thought he could re-create the soviet union, he would want to because of all the problems that would go with that, especially economic? >> he just wants those countries of the near abroad, most of all ukraine looking to russia and as part of an arrangement with russia, not part of the arrangement with the west. he wants to avoid them establishing stronger linkages with the west and he wants them to have much stronger linkages wi

: every single person told me they have a family member still over in ukraine and worried about their loved ones but also worried about their country. here's what they had to say. >> these last few months i have been losing sleep just watching everything that's going on in ukraine, so it's been a 24 hour schedule and seeing that happen today, it felt like the floor fell out from beneath me. part of me said how could he do this and another part of me was almost expecting this. i was waiting for this to happen. so it's disappointing and it's scary because i do have family that is 20 kilometers from the russian border and speaking with them this morning, they are scared, they are keeping an eye out on everything that's going on and they are scared for their children as well. >> all ukraine wants is just to be -- just to be a regular country, just to be a country where people raise their children, pay their taxes, they have, you know, lego system, just to be like everybody else. they are not antirussian, antisemitic, they want for themselves and their families. >> what do you hope t

supplies to ukraine and other countries. what is next in the playbook, possibly. >> you know, messing with gas supply is something he has done before. this is something that everyone would expect him to do under these circumstances, the use of economic leverage. i wouldn't be surprised to see him doing that. in some ways he leapfrogged the mackia very wellian strategy of using economic levers and gone straight to military action. once you have invaded a country, you are beyond stipulating supplies and economic measures to get your way. i would have thought vladimir putin, being a cool, calm character, would play a cautious wait and see attitude, and use the economic levers at its disposals to get its way. he's doing something that is unusual for him right now, which is acting in a way that we can characterise as impulsive and completely out of sync with international norms. it's unusual behaviour. >> i want to touch on that point. people feel like putin is calculating and shrewed that knows what he's doing. >> yes, indeed. >> are you saying otherwise? >> no, i say he normally is, if y
